Updated: Aug 23
November 17-19 2023 - Human Energy is sponsoring the N2 Conference – The Noosphere at 100: The Future of Human Collective Consciousness at the International House at the University of California, Berkeley. The Conference is an international, interdisciplinary conference fostering creative collaboration for intentionally and ethically steering the future evolution of global consciousness. Register here.
“N2” signals the exponential pace of the evolution of the noosphere and the reality that the next century will far exceed the last in rapid and radical change to the global mind. “N2” also suggests how the noosphere amplifies our access to human understanding - beyond the individual “n of 1.”
Major Conference themes are:
Science & Technology of the Noosphere
Philosophy of and Ethics for the Noosphere
Global Affairs & the Noosphere
Theological & Spiritual Engagement with the Noosphere
Dissemination, Representation, and Creative Expression of the Noosphere
Education for the Noosphere
N2 is part of a year-long program celebrating the centennial of the theorization of the noosphere, identified by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin 100 years ago. Human Energy is collaborating with partners: ProSocial World; Stanford University’s Boundaries of Humanity Project; Department of Anthropology at the University of California Berkeley; Fordham University; Centre Leo Apostel, Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Center for Christogenesis; and Saint Mary's College School of Liberal Arts.
Human Energy is a non-profit research, media, and educational organization dedicated to introducing the noosphere as a Third Story of the universe that can provide a source of meaning and hope for future generations.
